The budget of the San Francisco Art Museum contained a sum of 
$67,000, which is an annual payment agreed upon for the m

of the elevators in the Veterans' Building which, due to a strike 
In the Westinghouse plant, has been delayed and will probably not 
be undertaken before the 1979-80 fiscal year. 

The total revenues generated by the War Memorial are $1,289,244. 
Total expenditures are $1,119, 009 > resulting in a return to tl 
general fund by the department of $170,235. The revanue generated 
by the War Memorial from rentals for the f :' seal year 1978-79 
totaled $344,872. 

( 2 ) Capital Improvem ents a nd F acili ties' Mainten ance : 

No funds were provided for capital improvenents in FY 78-79- 

The sum of $70,000 was appropriated for facilities' maintenance 
projects. Of this amount, $32,000 was work ordered to DPW, 
Bureau of Building Repairs, for routine maintenance and repair 
projects in the Opera House and Veterans' Buildings. .The remain- 
ing portion of the $70,000 provided for facilities' maintenance 
was used to contract for various repairs required during the 
course of the fiscal year. 

1 

The amount provided for facilities' maintenance in tie 1978-79 
budget is far below the sum which is reasonably necessary for the 
maintenance of the facilities, taking into consideration the - 
of the buildings and the equipment contained therein. 

The Opera House Extension has been substantially completed as of 
the end of August, 1979, and is presently being occupied. This 
Extension has added 38, 000 square feet to the Opera House, includ- 
ing office space, and will assist in alleviating the problem of 
space that existed prior to its completion. Vhe major portion of 
this project was funded by a local Public Works Program (EDA), 
plus the' contributions from the Sponsors for the Performing Arts 
Center. 

Construction of the new Symphory Hall on the former Commerce high 

School parking lot is proceeding on schedule and is expected :o 

be completed in the late Pall cT 1980. The construe! ion of the 

Rehearsal Hall (Zellerbach Hall) is expected to commence prior to 

the end of 1979- 

The Board of Trustees, by application to the Civil Service Commission, 
has obtained a reclassification of the position of Managing Director, 
the title of which will be "Managing Director of Performing Arts 
Cern-er and War Memorial," which classification resulted in an increase 



Honorable Dianne Feinstein -'i- September 20, 1979 

of the salary range for the office. The search firm of HeJdricks 
and Struggles was retained by the Board whose services were paid 
by a grant awarded to the Board by The San Francisco Foundation, 
for the purpose of obtaining the best qualified person to fill 
this position. 

(3) Buildings' Use : 

Bookings continue to provide practically 100 per cent; attendance 
at events which are performed in the Opera House. The seasons of 
the San Francisco Opera Symphony and Ballet leave few scheduling 
opportunities to book outside attractions. With the completion 
of the Symphony Hall and the Rehearsal Hall, it is e::pected that 
more time in the Opera House will be available to outside attrac- 
tions and it is the expressed desire and policy of the Board of 
Trustees that as many outside attactions as can be accommodated 
be brought into the Opera House.

The Herb st Theatre : 

The rierbst Theatre, which has been in operation for a little 
over a year, has proven to be a valuable addition to the cul- 
tural facilities available in the area. There tu.ve been 136 
performances in The Herbst Theatre and fifty-four rehearsals. 

SF Museum of Modern Art : 

Located on the ground, third, and fourth floors if the 
Veterans' Building, the Museum of Modern Art attracts increas- 
ing numbers of visitors with its permanent collection, special 
exhibits, and film programs.

September 20, 1979 



Veterans' Building, as well as meeting rooms on the second 
floor, are controlled by the War Memorial Commission (American 
Legion) under the War Memorial Trust. Custodial services 
maintenance is provided by the City. The American Legion War 
Memorial Commission, in 1977, entered into an agreement with 
the Board of Trustees relinquishing to the Board v. he management 
and control of the Veterans' Auditorium (The Herb;;t Theatre) 
and the Green Room. Auditoriums Nos. 1 and 2 have been re- 
linquished for use by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. 

With the completion of the Louise M. Davies Hall and the l.ellerbach 
Rehearsal Hall, the San Francisco Performing Arts Center, consisting 
of the Opera House, The Herbst Theatre, Louise M. Davies Hall, and 
Zellerbach Hall, will be one of the largest and finest performing arts 
complexes of its kind in the nation. This complex will provide an ex- 
cellent home for the resident companies, to-wit: Symphony , Opera, and 
Ballet; and will make it possible to bring to the Bay Area many addi- 
tional attractions. 

The use of these facilities and the partronage of the attractions booked 
therein will result in the expenditure of millions of doi.ars in the 
City by those attending. The revenue generated by this facility will 
continue to increase. 

Maintenance on the Opera House has been deferred in the past years and, 
though it is an understandable political and fiscal expediency uncer 
the present budget restrictions, it will only result in disastrous fin- 
ancial requirements in the future. The funds for necessary maintenance 
of public buildings must be provided. 

The continued cooperation of the Mayor and the Board of S ipervisors 
to provide the funds to properly maintain and operate the complex is 
earnestly requested. 



Very truly yours, 



P. Campagnoli

Report for Fiscal Year^l979"19oO. 5- 

As set out in Charter Section 3-610, the Board of Trustees of the San Fran- 
cisco War Memorial shall "have charge of the construction, administration, 
and operation of (the) War Memorial and of the grounds set aside therefor." 

Once policies are set and procedures are approved by the Board of Trustees, 
they are executed by the War Memorial Performing Arts Center Managing 
Director and Assistant Managing Director. These two managing positions are 
assisted by two secretaries and an account clerk. Those five positions 
comprised the executive office of the War Memorial Performing Arts Center 
for Fiscal Year 1979~1980. A senior accountant, Facility Services Manager, 
Public Relations Director and Assistant, and an Administrative Assistant to 
the Managing Director were added in July of 1980, bringing the total to ten 
positions for Fiscal Year I98O-I98I. Only the senior accountant is a city 
employee, the other four are Foundation employees. Apart from the executive 
office staff, there are currently thirty nine permanent or temporary employees 
and three CETA employees. 

A Fiscal Year 1 979~ 1 980 Operational Summary of the War Memorial Performing 
Arts Center is provided by the following data and comments covering

and total expenditures were $1,212,697, resulting in a return to the general 
fund by the department of $196,951- 

(2) CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS AND FACILITIES MAINTENANCE 

No funds were provided for capital improvements in our budget Fiscal Year 
79-80. 

Through the efforts of Sponsors of the Performing Arts Center the $40,000,000 
in capital improvements are almost complete. The Opera House Extension was 
completed in 79"80. The Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall was opened September 
16, 1980 and will be completed by the Spring of 1981. The Zellerbach Re- 
hearsal Hall construction started in Fiscal Year 1 980-81 , so the entire 
project will be complete and will be turned over to the City of San Francisco 
before January 1, 1 982 . Sponsors of the Performing Arts Center contracted 
with the War Memorial for management of the newly opened Symphony Hall. 

George G. Matson was hired on March 5, 1 980 as the Managing Director of the 
War Memorial Performing Arts Center. 



Hon. Dianne Feinstein -3- November 19, I98O 

(3) USAGE OF FACILITIES 

Bookings in the Opera House continued to fill all but a few days in June and 
even with the Symphony's move to the new hall very few days are available in 
Fiscal Year 1980-81. 

The Herbst Theatre was rented 182 days in 1978-79 and this year it was rented 
206 days. The Green Room was rented kl days in 1978-79 and this year that 
increased to 60 days rented. 

Museum of Modern Art 

The Museum attracts ever increasing numbers of visitors to view its permanent 
collection, special exhibits, and film programs. In June I98O the Museum had 
completed the remodeling of the lobby in the Veterans Building and by early 
1981 both elevators will be completely modernized to more efficiently carry 
their patrons to the exhibit areas located on the third and fourth floors of 
the Veterans Building. 

Veterans Faci 1 i ties 



Veterans organization offices on the first floor of the Veterans Building, as 
well as meeting rooms on the second floor, are controlled by the War Memorial 
Commission under the War Memorial Trust. The number of members attending 
meetings continues to decline as in past years. 

(h) FOUNDATION EMPLOYEES AND ACTIVITIES 

The Performing Arts Center Foundation raised $605,000 in the Spring of I98O 
as a one-time bail out measure to provide funds for operation of the Center 
in Fiscal Year I98O-8I. In future years the Foundation hopes to help fund 
the Center primarily for capital improvement needs and to assist in maxi- 
mizing usage of the facilities. 

By January, 1982, San Francisco will have one of the largest and finest 
performing arts centers in the world. The combined budgets of all the organi- 
zations that use the Center plus the amounts they add to the businesses 
around the Center amounts to over $30,000,000. When a modest multiplier 
effect of four times is used the total economic impact on San Francisco is 
more than $120,000,000 a year. 

When this economic impact and the added quality of life provided because of 
the Center's activities are evaluated, hopeful ly the Mayor and the Board of 
Supervisors will agree with the staff and the Board of Trustees that a 
greater amount of funding is needed and justified to properly maintain and 
operate the complex. 

Sincerely , 



George G. Matson, Managing Director 
War Memorial Performing Arts Center

Pursuant to Charter Section 3.500 (e), herewith is the Annual Report for Fiscal 
Year 1980-81 for the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. 

As set out in Charter Section 3,610, the Board of Trustees of the San Francisco 
War Memorial shall "have charge of the construction, adminstration, and operation 
of (the) War Memorial and of the grounds set aside therefor." 

Through the efforts of Sponsors of the Performing Arts Center, Inc., the forty-million 
dollar Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall was opened on September 6, 1980. The Board 
of Trustees of the San Francisco War Memorial, during 1980-81, has by agreement 
with Sponsors been in charge of the administration, operation and maintenance 
of the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall. 

Once policies are set and procedures are approved by the Board of Trustees, they 
are executed by the Managing Director and Assistant Managing Director of the San 
Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. These two managing positions 
are assisted by a Public Relations Director, Administrative Assistant to the 
Managing Director handling bookings, Facility Services Manager, Office Manager, 
Senior Accountant, Bookkeeper, Senior Account Clerk, Senior Clerk Stenographer, 
Secretary and Clerk Typist. These eleven positions comprised the executive office 
of the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center for Fiscal Year 1980-81. 
Civil Service positions include the Senior Accountant, Senior Account Clerk, 
Senior Clerk Stenographer and Clerk Typist. The remaining positions were funded 
for 1980-81 by the San Francisco Performing Arts Center Foundation. Apart from 
the executive office staff, there are currently thirty-nine permanent or temporary 
City positions as well as one gardener hired through an inter-departmental work 
order from Recreation and Park. In 1980-81 the War Memorial had three Ceta 
positions. At present, there are none. 

An Operational and Performance Summary of the San Francisco War Memorial and 
Performing Arts Center for Fiscal Year 1980-81 is provided by the following data

The Honorable Dianne Feinstein -3- September 14, 1981 

Total revenues available to the War Memorial in 1980-81 from the City v/ere 
$1,671,370 and total expenditures were $1,648,581, resulting in a return to 
the general fund by the department of $22,789. 

In addition to the above, the San Francisco Performing Arts Center Foundation 
contributed $605,000 for personnel services, other contractual services and 
materials & supplies for FY 1980-81 needed to operate the Louise M. Davies Symphony 
Hall which opened September 6, 1980. 

Thus, the total cost to maintain the Veterans' Building, War Memorial Opera House 
and Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall was 2.3 million for FY 1980-81. For FY 1981-82, 
it is estimated that the cost will be $2.6 million to maintain the entire complex. 

(2) CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS AND FACILITIES MAINTENANCE 

No funds were provided for capital improvements in the War Memorial budget for 
FY 1980-81. For FY 1981-82, $250,000 has been provided to reglaze one side of each 
of the Opera House and the Veterans' Building to prevent erosion and deterioration 
" due to age and weathering. According to City Planning estimates, the entire project 
will cost $1,052,300. The FY 1980-81 budget included $98,000 for facilities maintenance, 
There has been no increase in this amount for FY 1981-82 despite the addition of the 
new facility, Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall. 

Zellerbach Rehearsal Wing construction which started in FY 1980-81, funded by the 
Sponsors of the Performing Arts Center, Inc., will be completed in October 1981. 
The entire project of Davies Symphony Hall and Zellerbach Rehearsal Wing will be 
turned over to the City and County of San Francisco on or before January 1, 1982. 

(3) USAGE OF FACILITIES 

During FY 1980-81 there were 216 performances and events in the War Memorial Opera 
House with a total attendance figure over 600,000. One hundred eighty-three 
performances and events were held in Davies Symphony Hall with a total attendance 
■Jpf approximately 500,000 for the ten-month period beginning September 1980. The 
Herbst Theatre was rented for 154 days, and Green Room 98 days compared to 60 days 
in 1979-80. 

Museum of Modern Art 

During FY 1980-81, the two elevators carrying patrons to the exhibit areas located on 
the third and fourth floors of the Veterans' Building were automated. This has 
helped to increase the number of visitors viewing the permanent collection, special 
exhibits and film programs of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Total 
attendance was over 300,000. 

Veterans' Facilities 



Veterans' organization offices on the first floor of the Veterans' Building, as 
well as meeting rooms on the second floor, are controlled by the War Memorial 
Commission under the War Memorial Trust. In December of 1980, Room 207 on the 
second floor was made available for the San Francisco Art Commission as temporary office 
space for six months due to a fire in its permanent location. 

Our program objectives for FY 1981-82 are to maintain an area of 791,100 square feet, 



continued 



The Hpnorable Dianne Feinstein -4- September 14, 1981 

an increase of 3.5% compared with that of FY 1980-81; to serve 9% more patrons; and 
increase the number of events from 651 to 740. 

(4) FOUNDATION EMPLOYEES AND ACTIVITIES 

The San Francisco Performing Arts Center Foundation contributed $605,000 in FY 1980-81 
as a one-time bail-out measure to provide personnel services, contractual services 
and materials & supplies for the operation of the Davies Symphony Hall. For FY 1981-82, 
part of this additional income will come from General Fund revenue and part from 
Earned Revenue, through increased rental rates. By 1982-83, we anticipate that all 
Foundation administrative employees and 6 security guards will become City employees 
under the Civil Service Commission system. 

The addition of Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall to the War Memorial complex has made 
the War Memorial Performing Arts Center the nation's second largest Center, next 
to Lincoln Center in New York. It has not only created a tremendous economic impact 
around the center but has also enriched the cultural life of people in San Francisco. 

Maintenance of this type of modern cultural complex is expensive and the inflationary 
factor will make the failities even more expensive to maintain in the future. 
However, in view of the economic impact and cultural enrichment the Center has and 
continues to provide, it is essential that the City allocate sufficient funds to properly 
maintain and efficiently operate the complex. 

The continued cooperation of the Mayor and board of Supervisors in bringing about the 
realization of the above objectives will be greatly appreciated. 

Sincerely, 

George G. Matson 
Managing Director

of the San Francisco Performing Arts Center, Inc. A separate agreement 
dated July I, 1 38 1 between the War Memorial Board of Trustees and Sponsors 
authorized the Board to operate Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall, the construction 
of which was completed in October, 1981. 

A certificate of final completion and occupancy was issued by the Department 
of Public Works for Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall on December 16, I98I and 
for Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall on January 21, 1982. In addition on January 
15, 1982, *;he City Architect issued a certificate of completion for the 
Opera House Addition. The statement of acceptance of the Performing Arts 
Center by the City and County of San Francisco was recorded on March 16, 1982. 

During 1980-81 the San Francisco Performing Arts Center Foundation contributed 
$605,000 in supplemental funding to cover personnel support services, other 
contractual services and materials and supplies necessary for the operation 
of the War Memorial, including Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall. On July 1, 
1981 the War Memorial Board of Trustees and the San Francisco Performing 
Arts Center Foundation entered into an agreement regarding supplementary 
funds and personnel for the operation of the War Memorial, including Louise 
M. Davies Symphony Hall and Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall for the period July I, 
1981 to December 31 > 1981, which was later amended to extend the period to 
June 30, 1982. Under this agreement the Foundation continued to provide 
the level of services and personnel provided the War Memorial in fiscal 
year 1980-81 and was reimbursed by the War Memorial through the general 
fund in the amount of $820,155-

Attendance at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art was 286,^88 , an increase

VETERANS' FACILITIES 

Veterans' organization offices on the first floor of the Veterans' Building, 
as well as meeting rooms on the second floor, are controlled by the War 
Memorial Commission under the War Memorial Trust. The Commission is responsible 
for scheduling of all Veterans' meetings. 

(M FOUNDATION EMPLOYEES AND ACTIVITIES 

The San Francisco Performing Arts Center Foundation contributed $605,000 in 
fiscal year 1980-81 as a one-time bail out measure to provide personnel services, 
contractual services, and materials and supplies for the operation of Davies 
Symphony Hall for the nine-month period September, 1980 to June, 1981. During 
fiscal year 1981-82, through an agreement between the War Memorial Board of 
Trustees and the San Francisco Performing Arts Center Foundation, these person- 
nel and other services were continued with funds from the General Fund and 
Earned Revenues. As of July 1, 1982, all personnel have been transferred 
to Civil Service Employment with the exception of Davies Symphony Hall engineers, 
contracted through CommAir Mechanical Services. The War Memorial has adopted 
a plan whereby Civil Service engineers will be phased into these positions 
over the next two years. 

CLOSING REMARKS 

Fiscal year 1 981 -82 marked the first full year of operation of the War Memorial 
as a Performing Arts Center with the acceptance by the City of Louise M. Davies 
Symphony Hall and Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall. The completion of the Center has 
had a tremendous impact on the Civic Center area, resulting in the establish- 
ment of many new local restaurants and businesses. The completion of the 
Performing Arts Center Garage will add yet another important aspect of 'the 
Center, providing safety and convenience to our increased number of patrons. 

With the adoption of the Hotel Tax Ordinance which provides the War Memorial 
and Performing Arts Center with 8.5? of the hotel tax fund, commencing with 
fiscal year 1982-83, we look forward to continuing to operate and maintain 
what is now the nation's second largest Performing Arts Center.

In accordance with Section 3.500(e) of the Charter of the City and County of San 
Francisco, herewith is the Annual Report for the San Francisco V/ar Memorial and 
Performing Arts Center for Fiscal Year 1 982-83. 

As set out in Section 3-610 of the Charter, the Board of Trustees of the War Memorial 
of San Francisco shall "have charge of the construction, administration and operation 
of said War Memorial and the grounds set aside therefore." I am indebted to the 
members of the Board, to our Managing Director and to our Assistant Managing Director 
and Executive Secretary for the support given me during this year. The proper admin- 
istration of the War Memorial facilities requires understanding as to their purpose, 
intelligent interest in its fulfillment and constant thought and effort for accomplish- 
ment. 

Fiscal Year 1 982-83 was the first full year of operation of all the facilities which 
comprise the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center; the War Memorial 
Opera House and Veterans Building, Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall and Zellerbach 
Rehearsal Hall. During this fiscal year the War Memorial underwent a change in 
management personnel, and the Board of Trustees confidently appointed Mrs. Thelma 
Shelley as Managing Director and Ms. Elizabeth Murray as Assistant Managing Director 
and Executive Secretary. 

As set forth in the Charter, policies and procedures as approved by the War Memorial 
Board of Trustees are executed by the Managing Director and Assistant Managing 
Director of the War Memorial. During Fiscal Year I982-83, management was assisted 
and supported by the following Civil Service personnel: 3 Performing Arts Center 
Aides, Sr. Accountant, Accountant, Senior Account Clerk, Principal Clerk, Senior 
Clerk Stenographer, 2 Senior Clerk Typists, Clerk Typist, Institutional Police ^ 
Sargeant, 17 Security Guards, Janitorial Services Supervisor, Custodial Supervisor, 
2 Assistant Custodial Supervisors, 21 Custodians, Buildings and Grounds Superintendent, 
Senior Stationary Engineer, ^ Stationary Engineers, Electrician, Painter, 3 Stage 
Electricians, Window Cleaner, Gardener hired through interdepartmental work order 
from Recreation and Park and h Engineers provided through a personal services contract 
for engineering services in Davies Symphony Hall and Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall. The 
1982-83 level of support personnel increased by only three positions over the 1981-82 
level; those positions being Institutional Police Sargeant, Security Guard and 
Janitorial Services Supervisor.

On February 11, 1983, Part III, Article 7, Section 515 of the San Francisco 
Municipal Code was amended to provide for allocation to the War Memorial of 
San Francisco 8.5% of the total amount of the monies collected and deposited 
in the Hotel Room Tax Fund. This appropriation to the War Memorial Special 
Fund is to be used only to defray the cost of maintaining, operating and car- 
ing for the War Memorial buildings and grounds as described in Section 27.3 
of the San Francisco Administrative Code. This legislation helped to resolve 
budgetary problems facing the War Memorial and resident companies. Fiscal 
Year 1982-83 was the first year of War Memorial operation as a special fund 
department .

ft Due to a rental rate dispute in FY I98O-8I San Francisco Opera rental for 
the War Memorial Opera House was paid in FY 1981-82 for usage dates in 
FY 1980-81. Thus Opera House rental for FY 1 981 -82 is unusually high. 

ft* During FY 1982-83, 51 days were required 141 Davies Symphony Hall for the 
installation of marble flooring in the orchestra lobby. These days were 
therefore unavailable for rental or usage.

Hall, therefore reducing heat, light and power costs by approximately $89,000.

Annual Report for Fiscal Year 1 982-83 
November 28, I983 
Page four 

The hotel tax fund legislation, allocating an annual percentage to the War Memorial, 
provides that any unexpended balances remaining in the allocations at the close of 
any fiscal year shall be carried forward and accumulated by the War Memorial. 
Approximately $212,500 of this accumulated special fund balance will be necessary 
to meet FY 1983-8** operating costs as the amount received from the hotel tax fund 
for FY 1 983-8*4 has remained constant with the FY 1 982-83 level of funding. 

The ability to accumulate funds has allowed the War Memorial to intensively address 
the matter of facilities maintenance for the War Memorial facilities. In a recent 
survey prepared by our Buildings and Grounds Superintendent, it was estimated that 
the War Memorial must accumulate approximately $225,000 per year for future facili- 
ties maintenance needs over and above funding for routine and unforseen maintenance 
and special budgeted projects. Realizing the difficulty in accumulating an amount 
which will meet growing facilities maintenance needs, the War Memorial must make 
every effort to maximize its accumulated funds. 

Additionally, the War Memorial is anticipating a one-time expense of approximately 
$180,000.00 i n FY l98'4-85 to facilitate the replacement of contracted engineering 
personnel in Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall with Civil Service personnel as mandated 
by the Civil Service Commission. This phase-in plan involves a one-year training 
period for civil service engineers under the currently contracted employees so 
that Davies Symphony Hall will not experience any interruptions in services. 

2. CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS AND FACILITIES MAINTENANCE 

In Fiscal Year 1 982-83 » the War Memorial received funding from the City's general 
fund for one critical capital improvement project. Through a supplemental appro- 
priation, the War Memorial received $270,000 to facilitate the renovation of the 
north freight elevator in the War Memorial Opera House. This elevator, critical 
to Opera, Ballet and outside productions, was badly in need of renovation as 
breakdowns and unsafe conditions were becoming more frequent and apparent. 

Fiscal Year 1 982-83 marked the first year of an extensive facilities maintenance 
program administered by the War Memorial. In previous years, funds allocated to 
the facilities maintenance program were Insufficient to meet growing facilities 
maintenance needs. This problem became more acute with the addition of two facili- 
ties in FY 1980-81. During FY 1 982-83 > the facilities maintenance program was 
funded at a level of $158,159, a G0% increase over the 1981-82 level of funding. 
Some overdue projects which were funded during FY 1 982-83 are listed below: 

Miscellaneous plant mechanical repairs 

Repairs to sidewalks and driveways 

Replacement of hot water piping in the Opera House and Veterans Building 

Repairs to Opera House stage rigging system 

Repair copper roofs (Opera House and Veterans Building) 

Replace Veterans Building broken skylight glass 

Repairs of water damage to exterior walls (Opera House & Veterans Building) 

Installation of earthquake provisions as order by California Division 

of Industrial Safety (Veterans Building) 
Additional handicapped access projects (Opera House & Veterans Building) 
Alterations to Opera House Addition air-conditioning system to make 

it functional

-During FY I982-83, 51 days were required in Davies Symphony Hall for the instal- 
lation of marble flooring in the orchestra lobby. These days were therefore un- 
available for rental or usage. 

Facility usage increased overall by 5%. All facilities maintained the excellent 
usage rate which was achieved in Fiscal Year 1981-82. 

4. SPECIAL ACTIVITIES 

The War Memorial facilities were the host to several very special activities 
during FY 1 982-83- 

s 

A. 50th Anniversary of the War Memorial Complex 

On September 7, 1982, the War Memorial Board of Trustees celebrated the com- 
pletion of the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center at a 
50th Anniversary Rededication Ceremony in the War Memorial Court. In honor 
of this occasion, the week of September 5-11 was declared by the Mayor as 
San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center week, and a resolution 
was passed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors commending the War Memorial 
Board of Trustees on the occasion of their 50-year anniversary celebration 
and on the leadership displayed over the years in bringing the performing 
and visual arts and community services to the people of San Francisco.

Francisco Ballet, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Veterans organizations 
and City officials participated in this celebration which marked the 
completion of 50 years of performing and visual arts in the War Memorial 
Opera House and Veterans Building. 

B. San Francisco Salute in Honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His 
Royal Highness the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh . 

On Thursday, March 3, 1983, the City and County of San Francisco held a San 
Francisco Salute in Honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal 
Highness the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in Louise M. Davies Symphony 
Hall. This special performance, broadcast live throughout the Bay Area, 
featured the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra, St. Mary's Chinese 
Girls Drum & Bugle Corps, the University of California Marching Band, San 
Francisco Boy's Chorus, San Francisco Girl's Chorus, the Marine Drum & 
Bugle Corp, over 500 members of various Bay Area Scottish and Welsh pipe 
& drum bands, the superb Beach Blanket Babylon cast and special guest stars. 
This event was the City's official welcome to the Royal Party on their first 
visit to San Francisco. The War Memorial and Performing Arts Center was 
honored to host this event in Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall showcasing the 
diverse talents of Bay Area performing organizations. Through much hard v/ork 
and cooperation from the various participating organizations, a fine performance 
and salute was given to our distinguished visitors. 

C. San Francisco Symphony 1 983 Black and White Ball 

On April 23, 1983, the War Memorial facilities as well as City Hall and 
Civic Auditorium were the site of the San Francisco Symphony's Black and White 
Ball. Over k, 000 patrons attended this event encompassing the entire Civic 
Center area. Patrons and watchers of the event saw the War Memorial buildings 
at their finest. The huge success of this event was largely due to full 
cooperating efforts of the War Memorial and San Francisco Symphony. 

5. SPECIAL GRANT AWARDS 

The War Memorial was successful in obtaining three important grants during Fiscal 
Year 1 982-83. 

In September of 1982, the War Memorial received a supplemental grant from the Herbst 
Foundation to allow for the purchase and installation of a $53,000.00 sound system 
in the Herbst Theatre. Installation of this superior system was completed in May 
of 1983, and the War Memorial is now able to offer tenants of the Herbst Theatre 
use of a high-quality sound system including up-to-date backstage communication 
funct ions. 

In February of I983, the War Memorial received a grant in the amount of $12,000 
from the S. H. Cowell Foundation to purchase equipment for the Herbst Theatre 
which would directly benefit performing groups appearing in the theatre. Supple- 
mental sound equipment and a portable dance floor have to date been purchased 
through this grant, and additional lighting equipment is scheduled for purchase, 
all of which is made available to Herbst Theatre performing organizations at no 
charge.

5. SPECIAL GRANT AWARDS (cont'd.) 

In the last weeks of FY 1 982-83 , the War Memorial received notification that a 
matching grant of $17,000 had been awarded to the War Memorial from the San 
Francisco Foundation for the purchase and installation of Sennheiser Infra-Red 
Audio Transmission Systems for the hearing impaired in Louise M. Davies Symphony 
Hall and the War Memorial Opera House. The War Memorial is currently pursuing 
matching funds in order to undertake this important improvement project. 

CLOSING REMARKS 

Fiscal Year 1 982-83 marked a year of transition for the War Memorial with Its new status 
as a special fund department and new management personnel. The War Memorial Board of 
Trustees together with staff have developed further policies, procedures and programs 
that will address current and long-term needs of the Performing Arts Center and of 
resident artistic companies. The War Memorial Board of Trustees is committed to 
furthering the purpose of providing outstanding cultural entertainment and education 
to citizens of San Francisco. 

I would like to extend my thanks to you and the Board of Supervisors for your continued 
cooperation and support of the War Memorial and Performing Arts Center as well as for 
your personal efforts that have enabled us to provide cultural enrichment to Bay Area 
residents and to our many visitors.

In accordance with Section 3.500(e) of the Charter of the City and County 
of San Francisco, herewith is the~ Annual Report for the San Francisco 
War Memorial and Performing Arts Center for Fiscal Year 1933-84. 

As set out in Section 3.610 of the Charter, the Board of Trustees of the 
War Memorial of San Francisco shall "have charge of the construction, 
administration and operation of said War Memorial and the grounds set 
aside therefore." The Board, management and staff of the War Memorial 
have continued in their dedicated work to properly administer the Mar 
Memorial facilities which offer a multitude of cultural entertainment 
forms to San Francisco residents and visitors. 

Following three transitional years, including the addition of Louise M. 
Davies Symphony Hall in 1980-81, the addition of Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall 
in 1981-82 and the transition of private employees to Civil Service in 
1982-S3, FY 1983-84 marked a year in which departmental objectives could 
be measured and long-range goals identified. 

As set forth in the Charter, policies and procedures approved by the War 
Manorial Board of Trustees are executed and implemented by the Managing 
Director and Assistant Managing Directcr of the War Memorial. During 
Fiscal Year 1933-84, War Memorial management was assisted and supported 
by the following Civil Service personnel: 3 Performing Arts Center Aides, 
Senior Accountant, Accountant, Sr. Account Clerk, Principal Clerk, Sr. 
Clerk Stenographer, 3 Senior Clerk Typists, Institutional Police Sargeant, 
18 Security Guards, Janitorial Services Supervisor, Custodial Supervisor, 
2 Assistant Custodial Supervisors, 21 Custodians, Buildings and Grounds 
Superintendent, Chief Engineer, Senior Stationary Engineer, 4 Stationary 
Engineers, Electrician, Painter, 3 Stage Electricians, Window Cleaner, 
Gardner (hired through interdepartmental work order with Recreation and 
Park), and four contractual engineering personnel to perform engineering 
and mechanical services in Louise M. Davies Sr ill and Zellerbach 
Rehearsal Hall. 

FY 1933-84 support personnel increased by only one position over the 



continued 



San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center 
October 2, 1984/Page 2 

FY 1982-83 level of support personnel, Th jrial deleted the 
position of 1222 Sr. Payroll and Personnel Clerk and added 
positions: Chief Engineer and Security Guard. The position of Chief 
Engineer was added to the 1 ineering staff in order for 

the War Memorial to meet continually increasing buildings service 
needs due to increased activities in. the facilities and due to an 
increasing volume of maintenance work necessitated by the age of the 
facilities. The addition of one Security Guard was necessary in 
order for the War Memorial to provide full security services at 
Zellerbach Rehearsal Hall. 

An Operational and Performance Summary of the San Francisco War 
Memorial and Performing Arts Center for Fiscal Year 1983-84 is pro- 
vided in the following data and comments: 

1. Operational Budget Data 

2. Facilities Maintenance and Capital Improvement Programs

5. Long-Range Planning 



1. WAR MEMORIAL COMPARATIVE OPERATING BUDGET DATA 

On February 11, 1933, Part II, Article 7, Section 515 of the San 
Francisco Municipal Code was amended to provide for allocation to 
the War Memorial of San Francisco 8.53! of the total amount of monies 
collected and deposited in the Hotel Room Tax Fund. This appropri- 
ation to the War Memorial Special Fund is to be used to defray the 
cost of maintaining, operating and caring for the War Memorial build- 
ings and grounds as described in Section 27.3 of the San Francisco

TOTAL REVENUE AVAILABLE 

*Due to a rental rate dispute in FY 1980-81, San Francisco Opera rental 
for the War Memorial Opera House was paid in FY 1981-82 for usage dates 
in 1980-81. Thus Opera House rental for FY 1981-32 is unusually high. 

2During FY 1982-83, 51 days were required in Davies Symphony Hall for 
the installation of marble flooring in the orchestra lobby. These days 
were therefore unavailable for rental.

ACCUMULATED SPECIAL FUND BALANCE --- $ 605,267 $ 332,997 

During Fiscal Years 1982-83 and 1983-84, the War Memorial was able to 
realize a special fund balance due to savings in the areas of permanent 
salaries and fringe benefits. These savings were largely due to the 
number of temporary personnel within the department and due to long 
delays in the filling of permanent positions. It is highly unlikely that 
future year-end surplusses will occur due to the fact that the War 
Memorial is now operating with few employment vacancies and due to a 7" 
reduction in the number of temporary employees within the department. 
The hotel tax fund legislation, allocating an annual percentage to the 
War Memorial, provides that any unexpended balances remaining in the 
allocation at the close of any fiscal year shall be carried forward and 
accumulated by the War Memorial. Approximately $287,311 of this accu- 
mulated special fund balance will be necessary to meet FY 1984-85 oper- 
ating costs. The hotel fund allocation to the War Memorial for FY 1984-85 
represents a 2% decrease from the actual amount received in FY 1983-84, 
while the War Memorial's operating budget increased by 15%. Without 
additional funding from the hotel tax fund or from earned revenue 
sources, it will be necessary for the War Memorial to continue using 
surplus funds to balance its operating budget. It is projected that 
the use of surplus funds for this purpose will result in depletion of 
any accumulated special fund balance by FY 1986-87. 

Should additional funding become available to the War Memorial for its 
operating budget, it is the department's intention to use any accumulated 
surplus funds to intensively address facilites maintenance projects with- 
in the complex. In a recent report prepared by the War Memorial Buildings 
and Grounds Superintendent, it is estimated that the War Memorial must 
accumulate a minimum of S326,043 per year for facilities maintenance 
needs over and above funding for routine and on-going maintenance and 
special budgeted projects. Facilities maintenance funding to the War 
Memorial has traditionally been sufficient for only a portion of critical 
and urgent maintenance needs. It is, therefore, essential that the War 
Memorial accumulate surplus funds to address the remaining portion of 
projects. 

2. FACILITIES MAINTENANCE AND CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMS 

Fiscal Year 1983-84 marked the second year of an extensive facilities 
maintenance program administered by the War Memorial. In years previous 
to 1982-83, funds allocated to the facilities maintenance program were 



continued 



San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center 
October 2, 1984/Page 5 

insufficient to meet growing facilities maintenance needs. This problem 
became more acute with the addition of two facilities in FY 1981-82. During 
FY 1932-83, the facilities maintenance program was funded through the War 
Memorial's hotel tax fund allocation at a level of 5158,159, a 60 i increase 
over the 1931-82 level of funding, but still far below the level of funding 
required for facilities of this magnitude. In FY 1983-84, again within 
the War Memorial's hotel tax fund allocation, $362,222 in facilities 
maintenance projects were funded. This level of funding enabled the War 
Memorial to take on the following projects: 

Regular maintenance and repair of pumps, fans, motors and valves. 

Repairs to Opera House auditorium seats, drapes, carpeting and curtains. 

Cleaning of ornamental work above the Opera House stage. 

Replacement of miscellaneous water piping. 

Repairs to Opera House stage rigging facilities. 

Repairing of Opera House and Veterans Building copper roofs. 

Repairs to sidewalks and driveways. 

Repairs to the Opera House main curtain lining. 

Replacement of Opera House scenery battens. 

Repair of Opera House ventilating system air filter fans. 

Vacuum and clean Opera House grid-iron floors, fly galleries and 

crossovers. 
Replace Davies Hall parking lot fence and gate. 
Sandblast and paint Memorial Court ornamental iron fences and light 

standards. 
Replace Van Ness Avenue frontage shrubs. 

During 1983-84, the War Memorial received funding from the City's general 
fund for one capital improvement project. At a total project cost of 
$650,000, the War Memorial completed Phase II of the exterior restoration 
of the Opera House and Veterans Building. This project included washing, 
repairing and sealing the north and west exterior walls of the Opera House 
and Veterans Building and waterproofing the main room-rain gutter. Phase I 
of this project, washing, repairing and sealing of south and east exterior 
walls was performed in FY 1981-82 at a project cost of $485,000. 



3. FACILITY USAGE 

During the past fiscal year, the War Memorial and Performing Arts Center 
facilities were used by more performing organizations than in any prior 
year. Maintaining 100;.' usage of the Opera House, the War Memorial earned 
$263,305 in rental revenue: 94% of the departmental projection. San 
Francisco Opera, San Francisco Ballet, American Billet Theatre, Joffrey 
Ballet and one-night events were attended by 670,000 patrons. 

Usage of Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall increased by 33% over 1982-83, 
with 206 performances offered to Bay Area residents and visitors. Davies 
Hall rental revenue increased 29% over the previous year, totaling $296,798. 

continued 



San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center 
October 2, 1984/Page 6 

Herbst Theatre and Green Room usage during 1983-84 increased dramatically: 
20 over 1982-83 usage. A total of 196 performances produced the highest 
activity level in Herbst Theatre's history. Herbst Theatre became the 
venue for a number of new performances series in 1983-84 including the 
Pocket Opera Company, Primarius Ensemble and the San Francisco Chamber 
Orchestra. These organizations join our other excellent series present- 
ers: San Francisco Performances, Today's Artists, City Arts & Lectures, 
the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Children's Opera, 
Chamber Soloists of San Francisco, Friends of San Francisco Public 
Library and the Golden Gate Geographic Society.

increase in rental revenue. 

4. SPECIAL ACTIVITIES 

San Francisco Symphony's Ruffatti Organ 

During the period August 1982 to March 1984, the San Francisco Symphony 
installed its new electro-pneumatic organ in Davies Symphony Hall, the 
largest concert hall organ in North America. The organ, with 132 ranks 
and 7,373 pipes was premiered on April 7, 1984 in a special Organ 
Inaugural Gala at Davies Symphony Hall. The organ will be increased in 
the Spring of 1985 to 163 ranks and 9,235 pipes. 

Archives for the Performing Arts 

In January of 1983, the War Memorial approved the use of space in the 
War Memorial Opera House for the Archives of the Performing Arts. The 
Archives, founded and compiled by the late Russell Hartley, contain a 
comprehensive record of the City's performing arts from 1849 to present.

Following minor modification to a former chorus room, the Archives moved 
into the Opera House in April of 1983. The inclusion of the Archives for 
the Performing Arts in the War Memorial Opera House will allow the 
Archives to grow and prosper and to preserve the ever-expanding history 
of cultural life in the City of San Francisco. 

SAN FRANCISCO FOUNDATION GRANT 

In August of 1983, the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts 
Center received a generous matching grant in the amount of $17,000 from 
the San Francisco Foundation for the purchase and installation of 
Sennheiser Infrared Transmission Systems in the War Memorial Opera House 
and Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall. These systems, once installed, will 
permit patrons with hearing impairments to enjoy performances from any 
location in the auditorium. The War Memorial Board of Trustees is at 
present working to secure the necessary matching funds for this project. 

Retirement of Rudy Palihnich, Building and Grounds Superintendent 

I feel it appropriate to include in this annual report the retirement of 
Rudy Palihnich, War Memorial Buildings and Grounds Superintendent, on 
June 29, 1984 after 32 years of dedicated service to the City and County 
of San Francisco. Mr. Palihnich was with the War Memorial department 
for 30 years overseeing all mechanical and engineering operations. The 
War Memorial was honored to have had such a dedicated City employee in 
its department. 



4 . LONG RANGE PLANNING 

During FY 1983-84, the War Memorial Board and management worked together 
to develop long-range plans for the War Memorial and Performing Arts 
Center. The War Memorial will continue to fulfill its mandate to monitor 
a.id protect the interests and respond to the needs of our mr.jor tenants: 
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Veterans Organizations, the San 
Francisco Symphony, Opera and Ballet. 

The War Memorial is experiencing increased demands to provide space for 
a variety of needs including special events and entertainments in our 
facilities. In order to maximize our revenue and expand our rental 
possibilities, it is essential that the War Memorial work toward obtaining 
funding for the installation of kitchen/restaurant facilities for Davies 
Symphony Hall and for the renovation of same in the Opera House. 

Other mandatory long range goals of the War Memorial include the recarpet- 
ing of the entire first floor of the War Memorial Opera House, the repair 
of'the exterior of Davies Hall, including the removal of defective mortar 
wall joints and retucking point of the Davies facade, and the renovation of 
the Veterans Building Green Room.
